Kill, Baby... Kill!

Director: Mario Bava
Year Released: 1966
Rating: 2.0

A coroner rolls up in town in a carriage to figure out why townsfolk keep killing themselves ... and why there are coins lodged in their hearts. Some people find this to be an effective horror film, but I'm not convinced: the bug-eyed girl that haunts people is more likely to produce chuckles than fear (also hilarious: the camerawork). Of note, however, is Bava's unrestrained use of color: in any given scenes there are patches of green, blue, red all over the set, which helps the bizarre mood.
